It was with Marcia that I did my very first book reading at an event, way back at the start of 2014 and since then I have spoken and delivered workshops at her events.
It’s been brilliant actually because I have always been inspired by her own story of surviving domestic violence and living with mental health, and she has seen my personal and professional growth first hand. So much so that she recently awarded me as an honoury member of her Women of Power & Influence programme, which was a massive honour and gesture.
For some time now we have both discussed writing and have put together a writing programme, called Wisdom Writers, for women who are dedicated and committed to creating a written piece of work.
Meeting once a month for a four hour session, for 12 months, this programme promises to create a space for women to switch off and focus, to write with guidance and allow their confidence to grow as they try different techniques of telling their story, whatever it may be.
The sessions will be facilitated by myself and it will be a small group of ten, so with that in mind, apply while you can! The deadline for submissions are on the 14th October, so literally just days away!
Please note there is an application process and I can’t do favours for friends or family. This is an amazing opportunity so if you want to be a part of it, take the initiative and take action. Make your writing submission stand out and you will be in with a chance and embarking on your writing journey with the Wisdom Writers.
